Version 4 (modified by myshkin, 8 years ago) (diff)

Added OS X instructions and post-install steps.

Creating a BuildSlave

You will want to download the package buildbot-slave-0.8.3 from http://trac.buildbot.net. The instructions for installing it are somewhat platform-specific. Once you've installed it, pick a name for your build slave and contact d_m for configuration files and ssh key exchange.

Linux

  1. Run "apt-get install buildbot" to get the deps OR Install the deps by hand
  2. Download the package buildbot-slave-0.8.3.tar.gz. Unpack it and cd into it.
  3. python setup.py build
  4. sudo python setup.py install
  5. mkdir ~/$SLAVEDIR
  6. cd ~/$SLAVEDIR
  7. buildslave create-slave . buildbot.rephial.org $NAME $PASSWD
  8. buildslave start .

OS X

MacPorts has buildbot-slave 0.8.3. Creating a separate user under which to run the buildbot slave is advisable.
